Stephen F. Austin Beats No. 1 Duke In Overtime
The Stephen f. Austin men's basketball team made history when they beat top-ranked Duke 85-83 in overtime on Tuesday night.
According to KVUE, Duke hadn't lost a home game against a non-conference opponent in 150 games, spanning nearly 20 years. Nathan Bain's buzzer-beater layup ended the Blue Devils streak and hopes for a perfect season.
When Bain saw there was less than three seconds left on the clock all he could do was "Pray it would go in".
The Lumberjacks defense is one of the best in the nation. Generating 22 turnovers against Duke they lead the nation in takeaways. Duke also struggled on their own, going 11 of 24 from the free-throw line in the second half.
This is without a doubt the biggest win in the history of the program. Putting Nacogdoches "the oldest town in Texas" on the national stage.
Oh, Nacogdoches is also the home of the largest Azalea garden in the state. I don't really know what an Azalea is, but hey that's cool.
